An old Southern family is torn apart by tragedy when the Old Colonel disowns his beloved daughter for marrying a Yankee. Hard times have befallen her, but she would rather die than go to him for help. Then one day, by accident, the Old Colonel meets a little girl who is called the "Little Colonel," because she has temper tantrums-just like him. It is indeed his granddaughter, and slowly a bond grows between them. Can the love of a little girl mend the powerful hatred that has rent the family in two?
